to normal, governor chris christie has signed an executive order, rationing gas for passenger vehicles in 12 counties. here's how it works. starting at noon, owners of cars with license plates ending in an even number, can only purchase gas on even number days. odd numbers on odd number days. two-thirds of the gas stations in the new york metro area are out of fuel. and half of the stations in new jersey and long island are shut down. some have no power. others, sold out. completely drained. and for some, like joanne hughes, the wait for the pumps isn't just a long line, but a lifeli lifeline. with her father going through energy bypass 40 miles away, the only thing keeping this daughter from her father is a lack of fuel. >> it takes me about two hours to get gas. i hope i make it. >> reporter: you've been in the line for 40 minutes now. >> already. i don't know -- i have no idea how long it's going to be. >> reporter: a question that everyone's hoping will be answered soon. and it took joanne about eight hours before she was finally able to get the gas she needed to see her dad in the hospi
to the side. and we'll do that in pennsylvania, and the other states. you heard governor chris christie, i think he could not have been more clear in his comments. so let us deal with the tragedy that has happened in communities, and certainly for the individuals. the voting process is a sacred rite, but as -- i think has been made clear, people also have a responsibility to themselves, first and foremost. >> yeah, thank you very much. mayor nutter, and thank you very much, joe johns, stick around, i'll be getting back to you here on cnn, as well. i have a quick check of the map showing the final push is on in the electoral battleground states. with the clock ticking and the race for the white house and a dead heat. have a look at this. president barack obama is campaigning in wisconsin, ohio and virginia today. while mitt romney is focusing on new hampshire, iowa and colorado. and of course, cnn is a place of complete election coverage. we don't know what is going to happen here, we have sandy and a very close race, all the candidates are focusing their attention in the battleground state
. this is a time to try to save yourself and your family. >> shepard: new jersey governor christie who tonight is angry. even before landfall sandy's winds were already doing damage. this a construction crane that partially collapsed in midtown manhattan just north of times square. a closer look here fire department officials tell fox news they closed off the surrounding streets, ordered people on the top floors of nearby buildings to evacuate. and officials say so far no injuries. that crane up 65 stories. look at this. the super storm is shut down mass transit in boston, philadelphia, washington, d.c. and new york. this is grand central terminal. and here the time square subway station. never have i seen it like this. officials say they cannot tell us when the trains and buses will be running again. but certainly not for tomorrow morning's rush. >> shepard: details of why less than a minute. first from steve, what's the latest from officials there? >> officials are really trying to emphasize that people should not go out. that they should stay in their homes. and perhaps the strong sexual of
christie and the mayor of atlantic city. governor said the mayor didn't follow the instructions properly, didn't work hard enough to get people out of the city. we had both of them on air last night, pretty much calling each other names. so i imagine there will be some phone calls this morning about what should have happened. but bottom line, our initial assessment of atlantic city right now, soledad, is it may -- it splay dodged the worst of it despite how bad it looked last night. >> it surely looked bad. thank you, ali, certainly appreciate it. we're going to head now to -- who's up next? peter king, congressman peter king, looks like he's ready for us. peter king is out in long island, and obviously long island took a big brunt of this storm. congressman king, thank you for your time. first tell me exactly the damage that you've seen. i haven't had a lot of live reports on what has happened in long island outside of my hometown, smithtown, which i know has lost power. can you tell me what some of the worst damage is? >> yeah, that's right. absolutely devastating. for instance, long b
jersey governor chris christie made some very, very dire assessments to what he expects the damage will be in atlantic city and on the jersey shore. take a listen. >> i think what we'll find, unfortunately, when we get to the jersey shore today is total devastation. and that's the real concern. because not only is it people's homes and private property but also you have the tourism industry in new jersey which is one of our biggest industries. we're going to have to work hard to make sure we're ready for next summer at the jersey shore. >> reporter: now, of course, the casino industry the biggest industry in atlantic city. those 12 flagship casinos have been closed throughout the week. they cost about $50 million in lost revenue during irene and the expectation was that because the season was a little bit softer, maybe it wouldn't be as bad. now it's clear that even though as christie called it the damage is incalculable right now it will be much steeper than irene. hopefully we'll get more from christie later. a few other buzz words, search and rescue teams went out at 5:30 trying
probably heard the spat going on between new jersey governor chris christie and the mayor of atlantic city. the governor says the mayor didn't do enough to get people to take it seriously about leaving. the bottom line is that the water is all gone. this is where i was standing yesterday. this was waist deep at one point. the water has receded. still a lot of flooding. and we are seeing a number of coast guard overflies that started again at first light this morning around 7:00 am. and they're doing an evaluation of whether or not there need to be rescues. we've not heard of active search and rescues. they are evaluating flooding, seeing who needs help. that's the boredwalk behind me, about three-quarters of a mile down. you can see those red lights. mostly just emergency vehicles around town. no serious damage. there are power outages here in atlantic city, carol. >> i'm sure. ali velshi reporting live from atlantic city, new jersey. >>> we've been telling you all morning long about a breach in a levee in new jersey that has flooded at least four towns. the floodwaters are very deep right
there is atlantic city in real life. you realize that chris christie had what we were looking for on google maps. suddenly you realize, holy cow. this is katrina-like. loss of life, no. but property. where did it go? >> the mayor is going to ring the opening bell here this morning. the president apparently reportedly this morning wanted to visit manhattan. bloomberg said i can't spare the cops right now. he's going to instead visit the jersey shore with governor christie. that's the level we're at where we're not able to receive the sitting president of the united states. it says a lot. >> seaside heights, jersey shore show, very hard hit for those mtv officials. >> the jersey shore of my youth is gone. amazing pictures. >> the sand in the middle of -- we don't know anything because if you look at long beach island, there's sand everywhere. you can't get to it to figure out how much money and property. it's property. >> true enough. back to the exchange, bob pisani has been on the case all morning long regarding how we're going to trade today here at nyse. good morning, bob. >> good morning. i'm
had the pictures of governor christie and the president of the united states, then the endorsement by mike bloomberg. how that impacts out there, hard to say. at this point from now to tuesday, it is get out the vote, the ground game. that's what counts. >> talk about the images we're looking at there. this is wednesday, president obama, and chris christie touring the devastated areas. they came together for the right reasons to deal with the crisis. chris christie was the keynote speaker at the republican convention, he is a key ally of mitt romney. did that image hurt the romney campaign? >> well, i'm sure it caused angst back stage. in the obama campaign, they said we have chris christie at our side with extraordinary images, but again, both sides will say we now know where the votes are, we know there are very few undecided. what we have to do is get them to the polls and on time tuesday. >> as they try to get people to the polls tuesday, they make their closing arguments, we know what they are. mitt romney says i am the agent of change, president obama is saying you know me, y
correspondents throughout the region. governor christie of new jersey blasting the mayor of atlantic city for encouraging people to shelter in place. we will try to talk to the mayor a little later on throughout this hour. let's get a sense of where this storm is now and how much longer the worst of it will be lasting. chad? >> we just got breaking news, this just in now. this cyclone, a post-tropical hurricane, is no longer warm. ali velshi told you it got cold. that's the issue. it's not a warm core storm anymore. it's a regular low pressure center. didn't lose any wind, though, still 85 miles per hour. it has now made landfall not that far from cape may courthouse in southern new jersey which would be right there. ali velshi is right here, in the center of that. here's the turnpike from philadelphia right to atlantic city. there's not much wind where ali is because he really is in the eye of the storm. when the eye goes over you, you lose your windfall, you lose your wind speed. the problem with where anderson cooper and rob marciano are, they're now into a new band of weather that wil
of these areas on the shore anyway at this point. >> very quickly, chris christie has been pretty scathing about the mayor of atlantic city, saying that he basically went against his instructions. what can you tell me about that and how much of a problem will that be for the mayor, if indeed people do get trapped and potentially lose their lives? >> reporter: well, we were talking to the mayor of atlantic city on air earlier, and i had asked him, i said look, 3:00, 4:00 in the afternoon, what do you do if you haven't left, because the roads have started to become overtopped and he said at that point, if you're not out, stay where you are, get to high ground. chris christie then took exception to some of his comments and i'm not sure the situation on the ground makes the mayor wrong. i agree there should have been a great emphasis on getting people out of town. most did. about 400 or 500 remain in shelters in atlantic city but the mayor's concern is that some people didn't go to shelters, they are just at home and there's no services to help them. unclear as to at what point the mayor should have
